According to sources, Academy of Dover had a recommendation of probation by the Charter School Accountability Committee. Their final report should be issued later today. Apparently the school, under formal review, has reached a settlement with Mosaica, their former financial management company. An unknown (will be talked about in the final report) down payment was or will be made, with payments over the next three years. The other aspects were their academics and issues surrounding the former head of school and the state auditor’s report. As well, the special education issue that surfaced with parent Sabine Neal became part of the formal review discussion. Nothing new on that front. Even though the CSAC recommends probation, the final decision is by Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy and the State Board of Education in their meeting on June 18th, starting at 1pm.
Once the final reports come up for all four of the charters under formal review, I will put them up!
